Summer Green Juice Recipe

I just finished teaching one of my evening kettlebell classes outside.  I was lucky enough to be able to join in this time around.  The workout that we did tonight is a workout I will be featuring in the next edition of My Mad Method's magazine.   It was a tough one!  Being that it's summer time, we were all pretty drenched after this class.   With that being said, the only food that my body was craving after this sweaty evening was a glass of fresh juice.  I wasn't planning on juicing tonight so I didn't have my usual staples.  However, with what I had in my kitchen I made a surprisingly refreshing juice that satisfied me to the fullest.  I had to write this one down so I can go back and repeat this amazing fresh green juice filled with rainbow chard, cucumber, celery, apples, and key limes I made with my Breville juicer.  Yummy!!!



Fresh Green Juice - this made enough for 2-3 servings

Ingredients

1/2 bunch of Rainbow Chard (I cut part of the stems)
1 Cucumber
1 Celery head
2 Organic Small Apples
3-4 Key Limes (hand squeezed at the end) Key Ingredient


Hope you all enjoy this one as much as I did.  Feel free to interchange your chard with kale, spinach, or any salad greens.  I'm sure it will be just as refreshing.  Let me know what you think.

Hi Lauren, how has the vegan diet effected your weight and body fat%? what are you currently weighing in at w/both? I've been trying to find some information online, Can you provide info on losing body fat %... what to expect/aim for weekly? how to calculate with actual lbs on the scale? Thanks!

Robin is an inspiration! It is great to see that you can look like this whne you are over 50 years old -so nothing to fear if you keep ypur dedication to working out! From the pictures I would have thought that she isn`t older than 40 years old! Lauren, one question concerning your diet: How much protein do you consume per day? I know that this is greatly overrated in the fitness world but isn`t it difficult to get enough on a vegan diet? And what do you do to keep Omega 3/Omega 6 fatty acids balanced as the body cannot convert the Omega 3 fatty acids from plant sources (flax or hemp oil) very well? Thank you and keep on with this inspiring blog!
